Telematics control makes it possible to monitor driver behaviour, acceleration speed, braking, cornering performance, engine speed, cruising speed, driving time and engine running times when the vehicle is stationary. In this way, the haulier can have the necessary telematics data at his office.
The minimum engine speed can be around 1500 rpm, depending on the technology and age of the vehicle.
The C99 allows about 200 rpm less, without reducing torque, which is conducive to environmentally friendly driving.
Do not run at very low revs to avoid carbon build-up in the EGR valve and particulate filter.
On the flat or downhill, C99 allows lower rpm, more economy and less pollution.
In high gear, when climbing or under load, avoid over-pressing the accelerator – better to downshift.
Moderate acceleration and allow the engine to reach its correct power and fuel consumption, avoiding carbon build-up.
C99 improves combustion, but give the engine time to convert fuel into energy.
Better to use engine braking
Deceleration allows you to cut fuel supply, save fuel and reduce polluting gases.
Use this system when approaching roundabouts, intersections and traffic lights.
Clean lubrication with Engine Flush and P18 anti-friction in the engine and gearbox oil protects the engine when using this technique.
Anticipation of space and movements of other vehicles
Keeping in mind a foresight of overtaking, more relaxed, more economical and more environmentally friendly driving.
Leaving enough space between vehicles makes it easier for other vehicles to merge and avoids a build-up of braking.
In traffic jams, it is better to leave space and arrive slowly to avoid stopping.
We save brakes, fuel, pollution and, in the long run, costly breakdowns.
With a simple mental calculation, we can see that, with this technique, we can use the brakes much less.
Engine interior carbon build-up
Driving well below 1500 rpm can lead to carbon build-up in the EGR, FAP and Turbo.
Avoid high gears below 1500 rpm for hill climbs or heavy loads.
Suggestions for the engine
Stop the engine within 30 seconds of stopping.
Avoid preheating the engine when driving, even in winter.
After inserting the key, start the engine as soon as the system allows.
Pass roundabouts in the lowest possible gear.
Anticipate distance, time and field of vision to anticipate the movements and reactions of other vehicles.
Condition of the vehicle
Check tyre pressure every month to avoid consumption, pollution and accidents.
Keep the oil level closer to the minimum than to the maximum, so as not to induce oil combustion.
Replace the air filter every 20,000 / 30,000 km. A dirty air filter can increase fuel consumption by half a litre.
Replace the diesel filter every 20,000 / 30,000 km.
Oil change every 15,000 km, first clean the oil circuit with Engine Flush and then add Meca-Run P 18 anti-friction to the new oil.
Replace the air filter regularly
Poor combustion and mixture leads to more carbon, more fuel consumption, more pollution and more breakdowns.
When switching on the air conditioning, limit the difference between the temperature inside the car and outside.
Opposition to air
Remove the roof rack from the car when not in use. Less friction with the air means less fuel consumption.
C99 and eco-driving
The C 99 makes it possible to drive at lower revs and optimises eco-driving.
C99 limits carbon deposits at low engine speeds.
On short journeys, double the dose of C99, as the engine is not at the correct operating temperature.
A car consumes 50% more fuel the first kilometre driven, then 25% up to km 5.
Catalytic converters and particulate filters take about 15 minutes to start working.
Using C 99 reduces pollution, and keeps money from going out the exhaust.
C 99 supports eco-driving.
